Gulfport’s splashy homes and businesses add color and pizazz to the city’s streets. Many local homeowners love to show off their personal style through paint, and their creativity fits right into Gulfport’s joi de vivre.

proudly weird


The friendly, small waterfront community of Gulfport has been celebrating its weirdness since before it was cool to do so. It’s also been a long-time haven for the LGBTQ+ community. The city’s eclectic collection of artists, writers, musicians and small business owners along with its walkable downtown and sparkling bayfront make this a must-visit place.
